What happens next to WWJD?

I am lucky to have a friend who actually knows stuff about blogging.  Alissa over at http://www.clevercompass.com knows more about blogging than I ever will.  She gives me things to think about, advice when I need it and sits with me when I (very rarely) go to a blogging event.  She gave me something to think about about a year or two ago when we were at such an event.  Someone asked me what kind of blog I had and I answered the question with a blank stare.  Thankfully, Alissa answered for me: a lifestyle blog.

How cool was that?  I write a lifestyle blog.  Who knew?

Then I looked at stuff and realized that "online personal musing that appear randomly from my brain" isn't a category of blogging.  The first seed is planted.

Jump forward a year or so to last week when Alissa sends me an email saying she received something from a WWJD and it was actually about Jesus and not me!  Surprising?  No.  Cause for thought? Yeah.

Related topic jump:

I'm working on getting my shit together.  I feel pulled in 27 different directions and need order.  The ramblings I write are in my brain constantly.  I need direction.

So does the blog.

So where do I go?  What do I do?  I rather like the idea of writing about parenting, raising empowered girls and fixing my kind of fucked up life.  But that's at least two different blogging topics.  Eh, I could probably live with that.

I want to change the name.  The name actually comes from a saying I had when all my friends were moving away from me - What Would Judi Do and How Do My Actions Affect Her?  Shortened, it's WWJD.

I'm back to feeling indecisive.
in·de·ci·sive
ˌindəˈsīsiv/
adjective
  1. 1.
    not settling an issue.
    "these experimental results are indecisive"
    synonyms:inconclusive, proving nothing, settling nothing, openindeterminate,undecidedunsettledborderlineindefiniteunclearambiguous,vague

    "an indecisive result"
  2. 2.
    (of a person) not having or showing the ability to make decisions quickly and effectively.
    synonyms:irresolutehesitanttentativeweakMore


I accept undecided, unsettled, unclear, hesitant and tentative.  I draw the line at weak.

All of this is to say I'm thinking of changing things. I'm open to ideas.  That's a hint - share your thoughts with me.

  1. (I just typed a really long comment and Blogger ate it.) I'd be happy to sit down some time and work on your new design with you over "coffee" and by coffee I mean Diet Coke or wine. I love your posts. I have been thinking for a year or so about a new direction and every time I think I have it, I have a different idea a week later. Sigh. I'll keep thinking for you.

  2. Yes!! Wine it is! Unless it's morning and then Diet Coke works. I would love to pick your brain. I'll take you to breakfast/lunch/dinner and come with questions if you're up for it.
